    A shiny screen-printed CD in a 6-panel card case with exclusive artwork and a prose poem sort of thing in the way of liner notes. Look at it and think of the cool waters and monolithic pines of scenic North Idaho.

lyrics

Late getting home again from the nursing home.
Mom got scared again.
Honeymoon postcard of some steps in Rome
from someone you thought of as a friend.

But oh,
it's a rare kind of friend
who's gonna be there
until the credits end.
It's a rare kind of friend.

Dream of blood flowing from Christ's own side;
wake up to the TV drone in your childhood living room alone,
with the insurance still not paying out,
with the secrets you keep from everyone;

the way other people's lives seem to shine
with God's own light:
a place near the coast,
op-eds in the Seattle times.

But oh,
what kind of son
would just take off,
no thought for anyone?

What kind of son would you be?
